Long before hurricanes (Allison, Katrina, Rita or Ike) hit Texas shores, I’ve been a fan of turbulent weather. As a child growing up in Baltimore, I would sit on the front porch with my Dad and watch storms etch their way across the Maryland sky.
Living in Oklahoma extended my interest and introduced me to the majestic and yet destructive power of tornadoes. I began to examine how storms can serve as a metaphor for difficult relationships, beautiful and intriguing while dangerous and destructive.
I've also had a long-standing fascination with the film, "The Wizard of Oz," in which a young woman makes an epic journey to discover the secrets of life and happiness.
